Whatever the cards looked like that you received for your birthday this year, they probably weren't as cool as Jim Lee's. He prefers the DIY variety and shared a picture of the creations he received this year.
Dan Slott, meanwhile, had the opportunity to discuss Spider-Man with his exterminator. What they talked about, an excerpt from the must-read #whengirlsrundc thread, and a note on the 4-year anniversary of artist Mike Wieringo's passing were the tweets that stuck out today.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 12, 2011.
@DanSlott Just spent 5 minutes explaining to my exterminator that it was ULTIMATE Spider-Man who died, not Amazing Spider-Man. He said, "Thank God!"

@Reilly_Brown Is the printer being paid? Is the publisher? Is the editor? Is the LETTERER being paid? Then the Artist should be paid too.
